My first try at a video review. Because of this, I decided to stick with something familiar (a game I had already written a different review for in text form) in order to test the waters.

For a first try that was pretty good, I enjoyed it.

It was great.

For your first review, it was awesome. Keep it up!

Looked kinda junky, but it was a pretty solid review.

That was the best user made video review I've ever seen.

I would not have known this was your first time. Great work dawg. You ever think to do this for a living? Maybe try to get hired somewhere?

Definitely a very solid video review - good job covering all the aspects people would want to know.

I still don't think I'll be picking this up, though - the "werehog" idea is just too stupid for me to handle.

Man, Sonic was so much cooler before he ever said a word...

Wow, very professional review my friend, you did a very awesome job on editing and explaining everything one would want to know about the game, I look forward to your future Vreviews.

Needs more cowbell.






...Just kidding! Awesome review. The timing and everything was spot on.

I think I liked your review more than I would like the game. I liked the commentary at the beginning... a little history and your thoughts.

I absolutely refuse to believe this was your first video review ever. 


From the video, to the music, to the clarity of your voice, to the point you make, to the length. 

Almost perfect.

Excellent job on the presentation and such. I haven't played the game, so I can't say whether I agree with the content. My main criticism would be to lose the "perfect" part.

Great review duder. You've got good cadence in your speech and did a nice job with editing.  Very professional. Keep it up.

Awesome review. Everything seemed to flow pretty naturally, and you were never too fast or too slow talking. It looked like something I'd see on a professional site. Nice work.

It was very good for your first video review.

Why not? Not many people gave Sonic Unleashed a fair shake because of the history the franchise has. If you liked the Dreamcast Sonics (and I did), then you'll like Sonic Unleashed.

Also, thanks everybody who left a reply here. :D

Very nice review; looked very professional.

I'm looking forward to user submitted movies on GB (Looks in Snide's direction.)

Sorry I've always wanted Sonic to die a horrible death(post genesis), no offense.

That was flawless.
I still wonder how they got the idea of a werehog?
Developer 1: I really like werewolves
Developer 2: Ooh! Werehogs?
Developer 1: Do it!

I almost didn't watch because it was for Unleashed... but I did anyway, for some reason.  Glad I did though, as it was a great Review!

The last Sonic Game I was ever "really" into was Sonic Adventure on the DreamCast, where I did like everything in the game.  I stopped enjoying things with Adventure 2.

You make some good points in that review, and it looked well edited. Keep it up.

Good review.

Posted by Bunnyman

Nice one. I played some Sonic about 15 years ago. I hope your next review will be of something closer to my taste. Keep em coming.

Nice. a little long though it seemed.

Really? I checked a handful of video reviews around the internet and 6-7 minutes is about par for the course. Jeff's Killzone 2 review right here on GiantBomb is 5:57. Hell, the Street Fighter IV video review here is almost 11 minutes. Most Gametrailers video reviews also average about 7-8 minutes.

I actually left a considerable amount out of the video review for the sake of length. If you check the URL at the end of the video, the text review I wrote for Sonic Unleashed back in late November is about double the length of the script I wrote for the video review here.

I thought it was pretty fantastic man. Succinct and not too wordy as some people had commented, I rather enjoyed the more contextual approach - it works well with games such as Sonic which have generations of consoles behind them. I highly doubt it would have been possible for a reviewer to write a Super Mario Galaxy review without reference to at leas SM64 if not Sunshine.

Keep it up =]

Really good review. You speak very well.
